8th March 2017

Ahead of the sold-out Hall of Fame dinner on March 17 at the Invercarse Hotel, we are looking at this year's inductees in greater detail and in this article we look at Cult hero and 1994 silver kisser Guido van de Kamp. Guido signed for the Club in July 1991 for a reported £40,000 from NEC Nijmegen and made his debut in a 4-1 victory over St Mirren on 13 August that season and remained the number one choice for the majority of the 1991/92 season before falling out of favour and playing reserve football while on the transfer list. Guido won back the starting jersey in November 1993 and remained the number one choice up until his final game for the Club - the 1994 Scottish Cup final. After securing a move to Dunfermline in January 1995 for an undisclosed fee, Guido remained in Scottish football until 2001, spending four years at Raith Rovers before ending his time at Alloa. When memories return to 1994, it is invariably the goal and the glory which come to mind first, but during that game and indeed the full cup run, Guido produced several outstanding saves. In particular, his save from Mykhaylychenko in the 54th minute of the final, only minutes after Craig Brewster had opened the scoring, seems a massive moment all these years later. Later this month, Guido will take his place on the roll of honour alongside other heroes from our Club's history and United fans in attendance will get their opportunity to raise a glass in his honour.
